Self-care, skin care.

Every morning, I rely on Garnier Micellar Rose Cleansing Water to enhance the look and feel of my skin. This 700ml bottle of Glow Boosting Cleanser & Makeup Remover is specially formulated for dull skin and has been recognized by the British Skin Foundation. For an eco-friendly option, I pair it with reusable Micellar Eco Pads. Say goodbye to lacklustre skin and hello to a radiant complexion with Garnier Micellar Rose Cleansing Water.

I love the fact it is a quick and easy addition to my daily routine, no need to rinse it off afterwards. Just use it and go.

Tattoo, or not to Tattoo….

What tattoo do you want and where would you put it?

Personally, tattoos are not my thing. I appreciate them on other people and can definitely see how they can hold great personal significance for someone, but when it comes to my own body, I just can’t imagine permanently marking myself in that way.

For one thing, the idea of being stuck with a design for the rest of my life is a bit daunting. Plus, while there are certainly skilled tattoo artists out there who do amazing work, there’s always a risk of something going wrong or the design not coming out quite the way you imagined.

Finally, as much as I don’t like to place too much importance on what others might think of me, there’s still a little voice in my head that worries about how tattoos could affect general social interactions.

All that being said though, I’ve still got mad respect for anyone who chooses to get inked – it takes guts and commitment!


Lip care.

I was lucky enough to be given some ‘Dr PawPaw’ lip Balm for Christmas and have to say, it’s really good.

It goes on easily and doesn’t feel too greasy, once it’s on it soaks into the skin fairly quickly and doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything on your lips.

The one I have is the original Balm, which says it is multipurpose soothing Balm with natural pawpaw. For lips, skin, cuticles, and beauty finishing.

Also it is fragrance free, and vegan friendly. You can buy it here via Amazon. (affiliate link, I may be paid a small amount if you make a purchase)

Make-up, yes or no?

I love wearing make-up but am extremely unconfident of my ability to apply it well, so rarely wear it. However I am going to be at a media event on Wednesday, so feel it is an occasion for me to wear some – just some basic coverage to hide any blemish’s etc….. nothing over the top or overly obvious, a ‘natural’ look.

What basic and simple advise can you give me? I have invested in concealer and a foundation, and already have loads of eye-shadows, lipstick/gloss, etc…. just felt the foundation I had was due to be replaced.

I have quite pale skin so please bear that in mind,
